“Fabulous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Just home after 7 nights in Hotel Belvedere. A lovely small hotel just far enough away from the main street to be quiet, but close enough to be convenient to all the sites. We stayed in the new apartment block about 200 metres from the main hotel; our room was fabulous, spacious, modern, spotlessly clean and with more storage than even the most ambitious WAG could ever hope to fill.
Where the hotel really excelled was on my birthday - we got a phone call to the room to say the management had a gift for me and I was delighted to be on the receiving end of a bottle of Prosecco and a fresh cream birthday cake. Many thanks to the staff it really was appreciated.

Room Tip: Apartment 520 is huge. A view of sea and Etna is a must.

Chriacques, Direttore at Villa Belvedere, responded to this review, July 21, 2014
Dear Sir,

Thank you for your very kind comments on your stay at Villa Belvedere's elegant Studio Apartments which we very much appreciate and trust you will not object if we correct the position they are in, which is at only some 70 metres, (not 200), from the main hotel building, on the opposite side of the road and on a slightly higher level so that, as you rightly mention, the broad view over the coastline, across the sea and southwards, to Mount Etna is an absolute must and can be enjoyed by guests in all four of these luxury apartments. Guests, who are of course also welcome to make use of all the hotel facilities such as the pool, restaurant, breakfast room, lounges, terraces, gardens and so on.

Thank you again and kindest regards,

Cristian Pecaut,
Manager.

I brought a small group to the Villa Belvedere on the 29th of June and it is just stunning. We had room number 61 on the top floor, which had an amazing uninterrupted view of the sea from a lovely balcony with two comfortable reclining chairs. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was a decent size and well-appointed with bath, wc and bidet. There was a shower over the bath so not suitable if you can't climb into a bath. In fact, the whole resort of Taormina is totally unsuitable for the less mobile as there are steps everywhere, not just in the hotel but all around the town too. The public areas of the hotel are really nice, with lots of comfy, squashy sofas, and the terrace is a delightful place to gather for a drink in the evening. The pool was fairly small but had plenty of loungers and a nice pool bar - prices here are not cheap but the food was good. The breakfast was excellent with loads of choice of cold & hot food, fruit & cereals and plenty of freshly baked bread.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building and on the top floor if possible.

A lovely hotel in a perfect location being away from the busy main roads but an easy walk from all the sights, shops and restaurants. Our room was on the third floor with a private balcony so we had spectacular views of the sea and Mount Etna. Both our bedroom and bathroom, although small, were well-appointed and very clean. We loved our shower with the view from its window! We only had 3 nights at the Villa Belvedere but made good use of the lovely gardens, pool and poolside restaurant which were such a welcome respite from the busy town and the heat. The hotel's breakfasts and lunches were excellent. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: Our room, being on the third floor, was very quiet and had a wonderful view. Rooms on lower floors...

Wonderful hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, We had a suite which was very luxurious (I booked it in error and it was far more than we would normally spend but so nice we decided not to change it!). Close to the town and restaurants but delicious lunches served in the hotel. I would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: The suite is very luxurious with big bedroom and very nice sitting room and large balcony with sun l...

Great hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Relaxing atmosphere and lovely poolside area.
Breakfast offers great variety if you are a foodie. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing hotel.

Room Tip: Room with a view is worth it
